Thirld World : Googling the 'third world'

Tried googling 'thirld world' today to know how much it knows about my place. Realized that there is...

Third World Network - discusses Trade, Technology, Environment and other issues.

Third World Traveller - alternative view to the corporate media about the state of democracy in America,and about the impact of the policies of the United States' government, transnational corporations, international trade and financial institutions, and the corporate media, on war and peace, democracy, free speech, social and economic justice, and human rights, in the Third World, and in the United States.

Third World Newsreel - one of the oldest alternative media arts organizations in the United States. We are committed to the creation and appreciation of independent and social issue media by and about people of color, and the peoples of developing countries around the world.

Amy Smith - A scientist whose inventions can benefit Third Worlds.

Third World Band - a band from first world which has hijacked third world name. They were Grammy nominated for "AIN'T GIVIN' UP". Released by Shanachie Records in 2003.

A news link which will make India's Left Parties happy - Do all these consultants really benefit the Third World? . Anyway Left is more happy to screw Anupam Kher. Thirld world politicians are most busy in important issue of appointing Censor Board Chiefs and not about child labour and juvenile whores. It's too common in thirld world...

Last but not the least, yet unadulterated Geek World Makes Sense - Slashdot. News for nerds, stuff that matters.
Third World Research, Development & Innovation :

tovarish writes "It is nice to see that countries like India are trying to research communication techniques in backward and rural areas. While tech savvy people like us enjoy the latest gadgets it is quite a challenge to develop gadgets which actually help the poor and illiterate. While India's satellite launches and outsourcing news are already covered in slashdot umpteen times, sometimes her sensible achievements should be covered too."

Don't just get exited by the post heading, read the discussion.
